Lighting

I have been looking at switching to an LED system, any ideas on the 360w kessil or the dimmable onyx system?

Why don't you ask Heisenberg? Lol. I have heard mixed opinions about Kessils. Some fish store owners don't like them others are ok with them. Check out the reviews on Marine Depot website. You might find them helpful.

I have a 30 gal bio cube. So I would only need one. My main concern would be the coral growth and health. The kessil lights do make everything look amazing tho.

Kessil has good customer service. I considered it for my 40 breeder. They recommended two A150s for it. So you might be able to get away with one A150W for your 30 Cube.
